The other day, I had a hankering for meatballs and pasta, but didn’t want to go the standard spaghetti sauce route again, so I came up with this:
Turkey Swedish Meatballs
Ingredients for the meatballs:
2 turkey breast whizzed through a food processor until ground
1 cup of Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
- 1/4 cup finely chopped zucchini
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
Ingredients for the gravy:
To make the meatballs: In a large bowl, mix turkey, panko, carrots, zucchini, onion, eggs, Italian seasoning, and salt until well combined; form into 1-inch balls.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook, turning, until browned, about 7 minutes.
I had some dregs of dry pasta sitting in the pantry, so I cooked them up to have with these yummy meatballs. I steamed up some asparagus and sliced up some fresh cucumber sprinkled with dill. Yummers!
